Members of tornado-hit church celebrate Easter

HENRYVILLE, Ind. (AP) - Members of a southern Indiana church destroyed by a tornado last month say they will rebuild.

About 50 worshippers from Mount Moriah Baptist Church in Henryville gathered Sunday in a tent across the street from the remains of their church building.

Pastor Terry Lanoue told the congregation that there is no storm that can stop God's work.

The Courier-Journal of Louisville, Ky., reports the March 2 tornado collapsed the church that was founded in 1892 and rebuilt after a fire in the 1960s into the street that separated it from a cemetery.

Stairs that once led up to the entrance of the church now lead to the edge of a hole that was once the basement. About 15 people huddled there during the storm and emerged unhurt.
